Stampin' Sisters in Christ #116

Stampin' Sisters in Christ is inspired by scripture and this week it is:
JOB 13:15"Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him.”

Challenge:  Make a card of praise using music, stamp, or design paper, or just the word "praise."
I chose to post this before I made my card because the colors are so more brilliant before I took a pic with my camera. First I did make a digital card, Click on my sidebar (Stampin' Sisters in Christ) and check out the DT inspiration!

Paper Lovin' Gal's #7

IT'S THANKSGIVING DAY and Paper Lovin' Gals has this beautiful inspiration photo!
Here's my interpretation!
I chose to post it before I made it into a card because I love the colors and they always look better this way before I take a pic with my camera.
Oh, I forgot, it is digital!

Scrapbookers Anonymous "D"

It's all about the "D's" at Scrapbookers Anonymous! We're doing our ABC's and we are on the letter "D". I picked DRILL and I found a perfect Digi at Digi Darla's which I am proud to be on her DT! See I have alot of "D's" (Oh and by the way my name is Denise, so there's another "D"! This drill is so detailed (but all I know is it drills holes) Check out all the other digis at Digi Darla's.
Anyhoo, I water marked a back ground pic in MDS, cut out my drill digis (which are very COOL! I might add) I also made a ruler with MDS (also very COOL!), cut my circle out with my cricut, added a hodgepodge metal label from SU, and I bought these brads that look like screws along time ago and forgot I had them! I used my fastenater that I had to have but didn't know how to use it! (I'm sure everyone has things like that!)

Paper Lovin' Gal's #4

I gotta tell you, I love these easel cards! This is such a Fun challenge blog!
Here's the inspriration photo we used (isn't it purdy!) I like it cuz, you can enter anything you create! (provided it matches the inspiration. being a photo, sketch, color get the picture!)
I made a twisted easel card. FUN! This card was so easy peasy.

Stampin' Sisters in Christ #114

Stampin' Sisters in Christ is a challenge blog inspired by scripture and this week it is Genesis 3:6.

Scripture:  Genesis 3:6 “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it.”
We had to use are oldest stamp sets. I used a couple of my oldest stamp sets and a couple of some very neglected stamps. This is 1st time I made a water fall card and I really like it!
